“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 8:18

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“Pay attention to how you listen;

for to those who have, more will be given;

and from those who do not have,

even what they seem to have will be taken away.”

.

– Luke 8:18 (NRSV)

REFLECTION…

.

On matters of faith

it would be wise if we would listen…to the many voices and differing opinions…

with great care, caution and discernment.

.

It is so easy to lose the little faith that we may have (or that we think we have),

in this sea of deceit and confusion that swirls threateningly around us.

.

If we faithfully keep our focus on God and not on ourselves,

we will then no longer seek to only listen to what suits us and our lifestyle.

.

If the faith we have is real,

we will recognize the Truth

and we will gladly entrust everything to God and to His will,

and our faith will grow from strength to strength..

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Holy Spirit, teach and counsel me

and help me sift through all the deceit and confusion

which seek to distort the Truth and engulf my soul.

.

Holy Spirit, remove my selfishness and pride,

so I can gladly embrace Your Truth

and grow steadily in faith.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Holy Spirit, strengthen my faith.
